Are you high on Albies? Good contact, great speed..
Eno Sarris
12:48
I am. i think he'll have .100+ iSO, too. I like him.

It's a shame Yordano Ventura isn't a good pitcher. Ace Ventura has such a nice ring to it.
Eno Sarris
12:50
It's weird, actually, given his raw stuff. But I guess it plays down because he doesn't release the ball out in front, and maybe because he doesn't throw enough / trust his changeup enough.
oh man. classic video, plus he's from my hometown in Negril, Jamaica, plus that name.

Does Jesse Hahn have a future as a big league starter? Could he make a transition into impact reliever?
Eno Sarris
12:51
I still believe in the change, the curve is super high spin, and he was throwing 94 last year! I don't know what happened. I'd give him another chance at least.

follow up to my gas pill question: how hilarious would the arguments be with your wife and eventually mother in law when you have to defend not taking the pill?
Eno Sarris
12:51
Hah. You'd murmur something about side effects and ask if anyone wanted a drink.

Does Josh Reddick to the Blue Jays make too much sense ?
Eno Sarris
12:52
Okay, that's the one "Big Ticket" thing that would make a ton of sense. More "Medium Ticket." Do they have a 3/45 contract in them?

Let's say the Braves pull off the following moves: 1. trade for Archer or Quintana (without dealing Ender or Folty); 2. Sign Jason Castro; 3. Sign Luis Valbuena. How many wins does that team end up with? Thank you Eno!
Eno Sarris
12:53
77?
12:54
But that's not counting anybody coming up and being great, like Albies, or Mallex or the like. Plus, if you're at 77, you can get to 86 pretty easily, that's within the error bars.

At some point the MLB has to call some of their own out, right? The voter who submitted his AL Cy Young vote when JV had two starts left - he should at the very least get a memo, right? Why would the MLB allow anyone to submit a vote when the regular season hasn't ended? What if said pitcher throws a no-hitter or two gems (like JV did)?
Eno Sarris
12:54
MLB has no dog in the fight. The awards are Baseball Writers Association rewards. And the BBWAA has no reason to call out a writer, especially if the bad votes lead to more content and more interest and more yelling.

Eno, if you're the White Sox and collecting offers on Sale/Quintana, what's more important-- getting 1-2 blue chip players who can make a more immediate impact (say a Moncada/Benintendi/Giolito type), or rebuilding the depth of the farm system (as a #Barves offer might assist with)?
Eno Sarris
12:55
Teams always want the closer guys.
Kerry

Napoli - career season, fantastic teammate and clubhouse presence, mediocre defense, disappointment (again) from mid-August on. Do Indians need to keep him and what is reasonable price to do so? Seems mutual interest but for how little would he stay is unknown...
Eno Sarris
12:56
He was 35 and even if you discount the DH penalty a little, barely league average. I doubt there's a line of suitors, and I bet he comes back.
Del Marvin

Re: the Padres needing Jankowski, with Renfroe, Margot and Dickerson, and some guys in the upper minors, isn't OF a place where they have depth
Eno Sarris
12:57
Sure, but they're in collect mode now.
John
12:57
Just a heads up, Kersh has an opt out after 2018, so they've really only got two more seasons
Eno Sarris
12:57
I guess they could try to nail that down, but the priority is the 2017 team.

Breaking: Lew Wolff stepping down as Athletics managing partner, has sold his shares to Athletics ownership group. Is the team going to get sold? Or is this just predicating the new stadium?
Eno Sarris
12:58
I think it's good news for the franchise.
Erik
12:58
If you're the Phillies this offseason and have a ton of money to spend but are still a year or two away from contention, what do you do? Sign all the bounceback candidates? Sign some actual top free agents and hope they're still good in 2018-2020? Or sit on your cash and do nothing?
Eno Sarris
12:59
Sign someone. Their top three starters are all young and interesting, and they have a top shortstop prospect coming. I'd sign an actual outfielder. Yo is not crazy.
Dan

Who did you vote for AL MVP?
Eno Sarris
12:59
Only had an AL MoY vote and you're not supposed to reveal your vote before the results.

What sort of return, from say the Nats, would the Buccos get for Cutch?
Eno Sarris
1:00
I think the Pirates will want a pitcher, so I guess it would start with Reynaldo Lopez but it would ned to have more in it.
Pie

International players: maybe an open market with no restrictions? It (sort of) works for free agency.
Eno Sarris

The age thing is weird, the Buscones thing really sucks, the under the table deals suck. I'd love to open it up.

AL MVP?
Eno Sarris

Should be Trout, will be Betts.

Eno, answer this question that Eric and Dave refused to answer. How can you justify the insistance of Cleveland changing their logo/team name, yet every year around this time literally millions of innocent turkeys are murdered in the name of a "tradition" of giving thanks with those same Native People that we are systematically eradicating by ignoring them and their plight.
Eno Sarris
1:01
There is a false equivalence between turkeys and human beings in the question!
Kerry

One last question from me. How is the WBC not the worst thing for MLB? It seems to come at the worst point in spring training and interferes with the overall team plan for gearing up for the season. Or am I way off on that?
